President Bush says Britain and the United States will propose at next month's G-8 summit in Scotland to cancel the debt of African countries that, in the president's words, are on the way to reform. Mr. Bush made the announcement Tuesday in a news conference at the White House following talks with British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The president also announced a $674 million humanitarian aid package for Africa. Mr. Blair told reporters the United States and Britain stand ready to help countries that commit themselves to good governance, fighting disease and resolving conflicts. Mr. Blair has been asking the United States and other developed countries to support an initiative that would double aid to Africa by 2010. Mr. Bush has said that long-term plan does not fit U.S. budgetary rules because it would affect future administrations.
